For just the second time this season, Liverpool were held goalless at home.

However, the stalemate to the current Premier League leader left a bitter taste in many Red mouthes.

Jurgen Klopp’s side dominated the early passages but late pressure from United saw Alisson Becker steal the headlines as his heroics secured a point.

Here is how the players reacted as their goalless run stretched to three games.

Terrific Thiago

The Spaniard was man-of-the-match in the eyes of many Liverpool fans. He put on a masterclass in his first home start.

He orchestrated many of the hosts attacks and was by far the standout performers in a cagey affair.

Thiago also took to Twitter and said:

“Plenty of Positives”

Captain Jordan Henderson made consecutive centre-back appearances for Liverpool.

Accompanying Fabinho, the England international played his part making key tackles and leading on the field.

Could this be a pairing we see whilst Matip is sidelined through injury?

Praise For Ali

Georginio Wijnaldum has been in the spotlight this week as his contract saga rumbles on.

The Dutchman lasted 89 minutes and his below par performance was nothing to write home about sadly.

Formidable Fabinho

Makeshift centre-back Fabinho has raised eyebrows this season, but for all the right reasons.

Above all once again, he put in a brilliant performance and thwarted any potential danger from the visitors.

He halted Marcus Rashford’s opportunity from a counter attack late in the game too.

Milner Defiant

Despite just getting four minutes of football under his belt, Milner has called for his team mates to “keep fighting”.

Our thoughts exactly!

In addition, we must move on though and there is still plenty of football to played; 53% to be precise.

However, with the games coming thick and fast, the Reds have to dust themselves off and go to Turf Moor on Thursday before they lock horns with United once again.
